Friends of Science in Homeopathy (FSH) consists of 975 professionals from various science streams including health and medicine. According to the World Health Organisation, highly acclaimed service of Homeopathy is the fastest-growing and second-most widely-used system of medicine in the world. This has spurred the governments & regulatory authorities to increase resources, education, infrastructure and research funding of Homeopathy. The mission objectives of FSH includes encouraging universities to start medical degree education on Homeopathy, fostering good science in Homeopathy for better healthcare, right of freedom of choice of therapy for patients, Informed choice about Homeopathy, Health insurance for All, encouraging science-based pharmacies to sell and promote homeopathic medicines and educating the general public about synthetic chemical drug-based mumbo-jumbo medicine. The FSH initiative is supported by ‘Voice of Good Science’.
A Guest Post by Dr. Saurav Arora (The Author) There has been a gain in momentum in homoeopathic research in last few decades as evident from various research studies and publications but we as clinicians have a long way to pursue when it comes to research in Homeopathy, but majority of times, we are not very sure […]
There has been a gain in momentum in homoeopathic research in last few decades as evident from various research studies and publications. This spurt in research activities aims at clinical, physical, chemical, biological and medical achievements with universal scientific norms.
Ask for Evidence” of Homeopathy because the scientific evidence is vital for good decision-making and optimisation of resources. You are welcome to ask research questions that may include the name of journals, request for full-text of the articles, the kind of studies published, articles on applied research in homeopathy for specific clinical conditions and the quality of trials. This campaign of educating the medical and health professionals, scientific community, patients and to the general public is supported by “VoGS: Voice of Good Science”.
Only those medical conditions are considered for which there are 2 or more than 2 statistically significant human studies published in peer-reviewed journals upto the end of year 2010. There are 33 such health conditions. The compendium is prepared by mining 14 online electronic databases.
The term nosode was introduced by Hering. The first nosode psorinum was introduced in 1828. Nosodes constitutes less than 4% of all homeopathic medicines listed in homeopathic pharmacopoeia. Nosodes are not a routine prescription (prescribed infrequently) and are generally prescribed in chronic conditions in 200c potency and above. Use of nosodes and sarcodes in the treatment of disease conditions is known as biotherapy or immunotherapy or organopathy. Upto the end of 2012, there have been 11 research (human) studies including 4 DBRPCT published in 6 peer-reviewed journals (2 integrative, 2 homeopathy and 2 CAM journals) in evidence of 9 nosodes.
